I have really enjoyed my time at Whitefish Bay High School! The courses can be extremely rigorous, but the teachers make the classes so interesting and are always willing to help. It's so easy to go in and talk to them individually if you're struggling in class or just want to talk! Whitefish Bay also has a huge variety of sports (GO DUKES) and other extracurricular clubs that you can and should join to help make high school a fun experience. However, WFBHS needs to come with a stress overload warning...
Review Whitefish Bay High School
By far the greatest thing about Whitefish Bay High School is the teachers. As someone who switched schools in Junior year of high school, believe me when I tell you that switching to Bay when I was given the chance was the best decision I have ever made, and that I can say that because of the teachers. Firstly, they care about students. They are willing to make time for you if you need help. They are willing to explain and re-explain or find someone else who can help you if they cannot. They care about what they're teaching, and they care about if you're learning, and they care about making you the best that you can be, which is what I feel learning should really be about anyway. Sure, there are one or two teachers who aren't as outstanding as the others, but every teacher I have had the pleasure of encountering personally at Bay has been truly amazing. Thank you for making my experience so wonderful.
My experience at Whitefish Bay High School has been exceedingly pleasant. The teachers are not only passionate about their job, but also their students' success. The facilities at hand are wonderful- from the large field house to the beautiful music wing, there's a home for everyone at Whitefish Bay High School. I recommend to any incoming student looking for a valuable education to try out Whitefish Bay.
